Who do fractions get smaller when you multiply them by another fraction?

It depends on what type of fraction it is. If the fractions are improper fractions, the product will be greater than the two fractions multiplied together. (Ex: 3/2 x 5/4 = 15/6 or 5/2. 5/2 is greater than 3/2.) If the fractions both have 1 as a numerator, the product is smaller. (Ex: 1/3 x 1/6 = 1/18. 1/18 is less than 1/3.) Any other fractions, it would depend on what fractions you're multiplying. Remember, you are multiplying the numerator by the other numerator and the denominator by the other denominator.

When you multiply fractions by fractions what do you do to the numerators?

When one factor in multiplication is greater than one is the product greater or less than the other factor?

The terms (factors) used in multiplication are the multiplicand (the factor being multiplied), the multiplier (the factor that the multiplicand is multiplied by) and the product (the answer, or results of the multiplication). Any time either of the factors is greater than the other by at least one, the product will always be greater than the largest factor.
